When Joe Biden ran for president, Americans were promised a return to “normalcy” and a restoration of a much touted technical managerialism to the besieged halls of power. Yet, in the last year the country—indeed, the world—instead has experienced economic decline, societal upheaval, and the most serious risk of great power conflict in generations.
All of it was avoidable. In fact, before the novel coronavirus was loosed upon the world from Wuhan, China in early 2020 (or possibly earlier), the United States was doing better than it had done since 1969!
In the wake of the #WuFlu lockdowns, a complete and total reversal of fortunes occurred in almost every segment of American society (save for the vaunted democratic globalist elite who purport to rule us). Since those dark times, especially in the wake of Donald Trump’s controversial loss in the 2020 presidential election, the neoliberal elite have stepped forward to offer their “solutions” to our woes. And, in typical elite fashion, their “solutions” are little more than a naked attempt to grab more power for themselves.
Rahm Emanuel’s oft-repeated maxim to “never let a serious crisis go to waste” perfectly encapsulates what the Left is attempting to do. The pandemic was a once-in-a-lifetime event. The responses to that pandemic, while haphazard, were supposed to be temporary. Sadly, like so many “once-in-a-generation” emergencies celebrated by the Left, what was once a temporary response to an emergency is being fashioned into a “new normal” meant to socially re-engineer our lives along the preferred ideological lines of our ruling class.
Over the last year, we’ve heard calls for the abominable “global minimum tax” meant to stymie the competitive advantages that nations with lower corporate tax rates create for themselves by maintaining those lower tax rates. (Ireland in the 1990s became fabulously wealthy by offering Western firms greater tax incentives than other Western countries.) An even nuttier concept being bandied about is the “climate change lockdown.” Modeled on the wildly “successful” COVID-19 lockdowns, these climate change lockdowns would have the government forcing society into a lockdown at certain times in the year in order to protect the environment from humanity’s harmful emissions.
Of course, little mention is made of the damage that will be done to middle-class Americans, especially small business owners, who can ill-afford such lockdowns. It’s because the elite don’t care—and will likely benefit from the big business takeover that will undoubtedly follow the collapse of small-and-medium-sized businesses during these proposed “climate lockdowns.”
According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), where much of the Great Reset originates, “There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis.” This, in the messianic words of the WEF, will “improve the state of the world.”
While we can all agree that there are times when we need greater coordination between academia, government, and business leaders, when it becomes essential for foreign governments to work more closely on common problem sets, or for businesses to cooperate rather than compete on specific issues, the notion that the world’s governments would effectively synchronize key aspects of their environmental, economic, and social policies is downright creepy. In the case of business, it’s fair to say the Great Reset essentially encourages collusion, which is rightly illegal in many nations.
From overbearing “green” policies (goodbye affordable energy and hello expensive, heavily taxpayer-subsidized and intermittent wind and solar power) to “smarter growth” and “fairer growth” (meaning, greater government regulation of the private sector, which will ultimately place a needless drag on an already-flagging economy), our once-free market is being remade into something decisively less free without a single vote by the public.
As more Americans awaken to the dangerous developments surrounding them, our elites will seek to divide and distract as many people as possible from the truth of the matter. Thus, the Russian-Ukraine War is erupting precisely at a time when the democratic globalist elite require a distraction—and a distraction, such as the war in Ukraine, that complicates normal food production, puts people on a warlike footing where ceding more freedoms to the powers that be seems plausible, and allows elites to impose harsher measures upon our people and economy under the imprimatur of “wartime measures.” This is precisely what the Great Reset’s proponents ordered. Our elite get to shroud these “wartime measures” behind the veil of protecting the “human rights” of besieged Ukrainians (who have been wronged by Russia, no doubt).
Want to wean the world from cheap fossil fuel in favor of more expensive, “cleaner” fuels? Government now has a mandate to do that in order to “save” the Ukrainians from Russian domination and roll back Russian power. Do the elites dream of managing the economy far more than ever before, to effectively pick winners and losers? Don’t worry, they can do that now: to beat the Russians!
Are you ready for a social credit system? Well, it’s coming under the Great Reset. Oh, and want to get rid of those very pesky “deplorables” who may yet elect another populist who’d once again threaten the elite’s hold on power? Enter the elite’s preferred leader, Joe Biden, who is happily risking a nuclear world war with Russia over Ukraine—which should cull the herd down to a more manageable size. After all, a population so devastated by world war, and gripped by the paralyzing fear that would ensue in the wake of that, will be desperate enough to turn to these Great Reset elites without any further pushback!
World War III just might be what Biden and the other elites need to finally get their one-world socialist utopia. It will be built upon a foundation of lies and blood, but it’s the only way our elites can truly be sure that their great agenda for humanity will be fulfilled—while minimizing the resistance of ordinary people like us.
